    anyone have any issues with the knob? It would seem on mine, a week after getting it, the threaded bit moved up into it further. I don't recall it being that far up, and now i cannot seem to get the thing to mount properly...
    Anyone have a solution outside take it back and deal with that headache?

    Do you have a lock nut on it?

    I used a little teflon tape on mine.

    I'm about to buy this knob- do ya'll recommend it? Are there issues with it staying tight that are not overcome with locktite? Does it break easily?

    This ball does sit a little higher than I would like, but it does feel really good for shifting and all. It does have the lock not for the bottom and it sets it pretty well. I would recommend it.

    Why thank you. I guess I'll just wait until I feel like spending the money and buy both at the same time to save on shipping.
